How do I use Tezos Wallet Explorer?

How to Add Tezos to MetaMask: A Comprehensive Guide

MetaMask Wallet, widely used in the digital asset space, is now extending its support to Tezos through a collaboration between TriliTech and Consensys. This collaboration introduces a Tezos Snap, a MetaMask plugin, to seamlessly integrate MetaMask with Tezos, expanding the wallet's reach and capabilities.

Why This Launch?

The goal is to provide the millions of existing MetaMask users with convenient access to a diverse range of applications in the Tezos ecosystem. Additionally, this integration offers more wallet options to the Tezos community.

Integrating Tezos Snap with MetaMask

The Tezos Snap, officially approved by MetaMask, simplifies the process for users to connect their MetaMask wallet with Tezos dApps. When interacting with a Tezos dApp, the Tezos Snap prompts users to download and install the plugin without requiring additional installations.

Upon installation, the Tezos Snap uses the same recovery phrase as MetaMask to derive the Tezos account and address. Users can view their public key, address, and seamlessly share this information with connected dApps.

Tezos Wallet Explorer

In parallel with the Tezos Snap, TriliTech has also launched the Tezos Wallet Explorer powered by MetaMask. This open-source application acts as an intermediary between MetaMask's Tezos Snap and Tezos dApps, allowing users to check account balances, transaction history, and manage NFTs seamlessly.

How to Use MetaMask Wallet on Tezos

To initiate the integration, ensure you have the MetaMask Chrome extension installed and follow these steps:

  1. Visit the Tezos Wallet powered by MetaMask.
  2. Click the "Connect with MetaMask" button.
  3. Accept the connection in MetaMask.
  4. Approve and install the Tezos Snap.

MetaMask is now visible on Tezos' Beacon SDK Modal. It's essential to note that, for now, the Tezos Snap only works with browser extensions and not on mobile devices.

Migrating Wallets to MetaMask

For users interested in migrating their wallets to MetaMask, it's possible to import the recovery phrase during MetaMask account creation. If no custom derivation path was used, the Tezos address should match that of the previous wallet.

Adding Tezos to your MetaMask wallet is a straightforward process, thanks to MetaMask Snaps. These Snaps enable seamless interoperability, simplifying the integration of Tezos into MetaMask. Follow the steps below:
